  • Wall Street Breakfast: Euro Drops To Fresh 11-Year Low [View article]
    The size differential of a bacterium versus a virus is remarkable and typically hard to confuse.

    To put it in easily understood terms, think of an average NFL stadium with one big hotdog (bacterium) completely filling the stadium. A virus would be the size of a postage stamp on the field.

    I believe King Abdullah had 42 sons from a number of wives. One can only guess the yield from the harem.

    As Mel Brooks said, "It's good to be king."

    I don't eat processed sugar, have a low carbohydrate intake and abstain from caffeine. My BP is always about 115/80, pulse 60 at rest and my blood chemistries are remarkable for a man my age.

    You are what you eat, but genetics determine who you will be.

    [1.1 Trillion is the expected bail out !!]

    That would be over 90 billion Euros per month. The last I heard it was 60 B Euros a month, but I see, just above, that 'Interesting Times' quotes 69B Euros/month.

    One of the Big Lies of the 20th century attempted to define fascism as "right-wing". Communism, socialism and national socialism (fascism) are all left-wing movements.

    The overwhelming force of nature in our solar system is the sun (it is even named 'the solar system'). To the largest extent possible, all weather and climate is entirely dependent upon the power of the sun. Every other factor simply pales in comparison.

    Anyone catch John Kerry speaking French? Certainly a harsh American accent but I'm sure the French are appreciative that the head of our diplomatic corps speaks the language of diplomacy.

    [Keurig Green Mountain has signed a deal with Dr Pepper Snapple to sell capsules that make its sodas in its planned cold-drink machine.]

    Dr Pepper is simply the best tasting soft drink on the market.

    Full disclosure: I don't own a Keurig and don't plan on purchasing one.
